Crappy joke of the day

Crappy joke of the day

From the Sir Arthur Donan Doyle classic 'Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Corn-Laden Turd':

"It appears," said Holmes, stroking his chin with a ferocity that suggested that he was long overdue for his opium fix, "Professor LeFevre was stoned to death."

"Stoned?" asked Watson, loathe to mention the obvious, "as in drugs?"

"Not at all," the great detective replied, wondering if ground-up aspirin and snuff tobacco might suffice given the latest shortage of opiates, "Stoned. With stones. Sandstone, if I am not mistaken."

"But... but... How can you tell?"

Holmes raised one eyebrow, and with the sort of smile that led his companion to believe he would finish the day naked and smeared with honey - again - he uttered those immortal words:

"Sedimentary, my dear Watson."
